Last night I had a bad dream. Not a nightmare but a dream that felt so real waking up to reality broke my heart.
I dreamt I had a baby, chocolate skin like me, shiniest blackest hair like my husband, more rolls than a bakery and cuter than a button. I was so thrilled, I kept telling my husband, “Call you mom they must come over right now and see our beautiful baby”. And I cuddled that baby and kissed that baby and then woke up.
Immediate feeling of loss. I walk to the bathroom to brush my teeth and a single tear rolls down my cheek. I pull it together and get ready for work.
How can you miss someone who is only a dream…..
